Real estate mogul Sean Jackson is throwing himself a splashy 50th birthday party, but trouble starts almost immediately: His ex-wife has sent his teenage daughters to the party without telling him; his current wife has fired the nanny; and he's finding it difficult to sneak away to his mistress. Then something truly terrible happens: one of his three-year-old twins goes missing. No trace of her is ever found. The attendees of the party, nicknamed the Jackson Associates by the press, become infamous overnight. Twelve years later, Sean is dead. The Jackson Associates assemble for the funeral, together for the first time since that fateful weekend. Soon the barbed comments and accusations are flying. By the end of the weekend, one will be dead. And one of Sean's daughters will make a shocking discovery.

Narrator was excellent
The story was fantastic!!! I thought I guessed what happened then it twisted and I saw I was wrong until boom it retwisted and I was mostly right but shocked non the less
I am being cryptic because I do not want to give even a glimpse away.
You will enjoy it trust me
Hmm...I'd say somewhere in the middle.
I honestly liked the story, but I would have enjoyed it more if the flow from past to present had been more obvious.
Great narration, enjoyed her voice and ability to change characters.
I thought the story was good, but in my opinion it does not make for a great "audio" experience. I don't mind a story jumping back and forth in time, but I found on more than one occasion I was wondering whether it was present day or past.
This book was really enjoyable. The characters were great and the plot like was juicy, I was getting so excited to be dazzled and empowered. If I'm being honest, I was offended. I'm so sick of a story that builds a female character up, only to have them fall short at the end, they lose narratively. The book was captivating, the author is a great writer, but it missed an opportunity to tell a more satisfying and thrilling story.
Fun listen, twisted in a soap type way. Parts are believable others parts, not so much. Characters are believable and I even know a few in real life who fits the bills of them however the ending although deliciously fun lacks the shock and awe.
I collect spores, molds, and fungus.
Seriously like 7 hours in I could care less what's happening and I'm not even sure who's who yet.

I kind of like the book it took off in various.... various directions and the narrator was absolutely great the storytelling id give an 8 out of a 10 . I don't want hint so u know. .. what really happened but this novel can keep your attention if you are a what-if Junkie. You were constantly like what what what what what what what what happened? I actually wouldn't compare it to a Gillian Flynn actually compared to the writer of Pretty Little Liars
